Corso Trento e Trieste

Centro S. Chiara installation and signage

The installation and the signage of “Centro Servizi Culturali Santa Chiara”, property of Trento Municipality, have been commissioned by a tendering procedure. The project includes the exterior and interior parts of a medieval former convent, partially protected by “Sovrintendenza dei Beni architettonici” (cultural heritage committee). The “Centro Servizi”, thanks to the adjoining urban park, links different parts of the city and, together with the two theatres, attracts people of all ages and different cultures. Part of the complex, uninhabited for ages, is in a severe state of disrepair and except from a few graffiti of a modest artistic level, there are offensive and xenophobic writings on the walls, evidence not only of urban but also ci...

Urban of Regeneration of Presidente Masaryk Avenue

Presidente Masaryk Avenue is located in the central area of Mexico City, in Polanco, a neighborhood that was designed in the third decade of the XXth century as a middle income residential area, and has become the more exclusive commercial avenue in Mexico and probably the most important in Latin America. In the last years it has had to compete commercially with the mall’s system: horizontal vs vertical development, open vs close space, parking in the street vs parking building, open to anyone 24 hours vs restricted access, besides of the usual city problems (security, traffic, informal commerce, etcetera). The project for Masaryk focused on: recuperation of public space, widening the sidewalk and removing cars from it. Allowing car dro... More
